(Telecompaper) Alphabet, the parent company of Google, said revenues for the fourth quarter reached USD 39.276 billion, up 22 percent year-on-year or by 23 percent without currency effects. Growth was in line with past quarters. For the operating profit, it slowed a bit, rising 7.0 to USD 8.203 billion. The figure includes USD 9.70 billion generated by Google and a loss of USD 1.33 billion generated by the Other Bets, much higher than the year before's loss of 748 million. The net profit increased to USD 8.948 billion against the loss of 3.020 billion. The result suffered this year from higher interest charges but benefited from lower taxes. The loss the year before was caused by the impact of the Tax Act. Meanwhile, the revenue contribution of Google Other, investments, liquidity and workforce numbers all grew to record levels.
